Chelsea vs Liverpool Match Preview and Team News
The Blues’ league title bid has faltered in recent weeks, with Covid-19, injuries, and inconsistency affecting Thomas Tuchel’s squad. But the German has transformed his side into cup specialists, having won the Champions League last season and the European Super Cup and Club World Cup this term. Tuesday’s 2-0 home win over Lille in Europe’s elite club competition was a timely boost. Mateo Kovacic hobbled out of the clash with an apparent left leg problem, while Hakim Ziyech also limped off the field wearing a pained expression. However, Chelsea has great strength in depth, with £98million club-record striker Romelu Lukaku one of the players available to come in after being overlooked in midweek. Hakim Ziyech plays fantastically and creates a lot of problems for the opponent’s defense. Many clubs are ready to give a fortune for the arrival of this guy. Timo Werner is an amazing player and is unstoppable in a one-on-one game. He should improve on his performance from last season. N’Golo Kante is one of the best midfielders in the world, all praise for him.
The Reds are challenging on all fronts this season, with Klopp admitting it was the “first time in my life” he had found himself in that situation. Liverpool is well placed in their Champions League tie, leading Inter Milan 2-0 after the first leg, still in the FA Cup, and giving Manchester City a run for their money in the Premier League title race. Klopp’s side is in excellent form, with a spectacular 6-0 victory over Leeds on Wednesday night, extending their winning run to nine matches in all competitions. Klopp is fully aware of how much a game with Leeds takes its toll on players and will need his squad, which could welcome back injured forwards Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino, to be fresh. Naby Keita has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable.
